Improvements to Apex Park, Nelson Bay

Developed as an action from Council’s Nelson Bay Town Centre and Foreshore Strategy 2012, the Apex Park Masterplan to improve the park was adopted by Council in December 2015. The plan was costed by Council, but not funded. Council has since applied for and been successful in receiving grant funding, thus allowing for the Apex Park Revitalisation stage 1 works to commence.

Project Overview

Stage 1a of the adopted Apex Park Masterplan began in late August 2018 through the Apex Park Revitalisation Project.
